July 2017 COTM **Nomination Thread**

This thread is for July 2017 COTM **Nominations** PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE COTM NOMINATION RULES BEFORE PROCEEDING TO NOMINATE A MEMBERíS RIDE FOR COTM.
REMEMBER, WE MUST PROTECT THE INTEGRITY OF THE CONTEST SO THAT THE MOST DESERVING MEMBER WINS.

This thread is a Nomination Thread to nominate cars that will compete for this month's Car of the Month honor. The 12 (or less) most popularly nominated cars will be compiled into a *Voting Thread* in a couple of weeks. If you do not nominate a member's car for COTM, you can still second or third (fourth, fifth, so on) someone else's nomination. Cars must have at least a second nomination in order to make the Voting Thread.


  • Do not nominate your own car. Your car must be nominated by another TGO Member.
  • Do not ask your wife, husband, friends, extended family, etc. to register as TGO Members for the purpose of nominating your car.
  • Do not nominate more than one car.
  • Do not use multiple member accounts to nominate your own car or to nominate multiple cars.
  • This is not a picture thread. Post only one (1) good photo of the car you wish to nominate. Do not use unrealistic, overly-processed images.
  • You must post a picture with your nomination. This must be a full-sized picture (or at the very least, a pic or thumb that enlarges into a full-sized picture when you click on it).
  • Correctly identify the user name of the member who you nominate.
  • Correctly identify the year and model/trim of the car you nominate.
  • Do not nominate cars that are not in a high quality, finished state.
  • And if you are nominated, please DO go out and take an abundance of good quality photos of your ride (multiple angles, interior, engine) and make them publicly accessible (for example via a photo album in your public profile or some sort of hyperlink to your photo album.)
**Editor's Note**

This year I would like to, for the most part, give the members who participate the freedom to choose nominees unencumbered by monthly qualifications of make, trim, and build-type. I have always said that TGO Members do an excellent job of choosing a variety of different types of cars. The one caveat however is this:
We need to try to get some new blood into the nomination process. If your buddy (or a member who has a car that you really appreciate) has been nominated two or three times in 2016...and 2015, lets maybe give it a rest for a while. It gets old, even for the guy who has to copy and paste a campaign in the Voting Thread every other month.

The same high standards are still in place. The COTM Bait Thread is still open in the sticky section. Refer to it. Add to it.




*****This Month's Criteria*****

OPEN SEASON

Any very high quality, finished, stock or modified 1982-92 Camaro or Firebird.

Re: July 2017 COTM **Nomination Thread**

I already nom'd someone, but if I'm allowed to second...I'd like to second Ja85z28. I know the rules say just 1, but technically I'm just seconding....it's not a "primary" nomination!!!!

Linson know's how I like to walk the fine line on these rules! LOL

Gasspeddler and I live 20 miles apart!!!! Guys my Camaro is nice, and I am such a proud owner and do genuinely appreciate your nomination. However, Gasspeddlers IROC is "Museum Quality."

Ja85z28, this isn't GASPEDDLER's car, it's my 86 IROC that he nominated. Just letting you know so there isn't any confusion.

sorry this **Voting Thread** is getting posted up a day or two later than usual. crazy double-back work schedule has had me on a sleep-work-sleep-work rotation for the last couple days.
